28 Years with Disability & Chronic Pain

Hello I’m Robbie from OneArmedGraphics. I’m a 46 yr old upper arm Amputee, 3D Graphic Artist and Photographer, and Entrepreneur.

I also blog here about my 28-year journey with chronic pain and disability.

I lost my dominant arm in a motorbike accident when I was only 17 years old. It definitely was one of those ‘Shit Happens‘ days.

I’m now a very happily married man and Father of Olly our extremely cute son who is now 3.

Join me here in my chronicle of the many challenges I face holding down a full-time job whilst suffering from chronic pain and the side-effects of the cocktail of medications I ingest every day. I’m currently focused on setting up a side-gig creating and selling products made on my Laser and CNC cutter/engravers


These are some of the images I’ve created or photographs taken over the years.

Life is hard, sometimes very hard. The suffering we endure can be immense and the challenges living life missing a limb can also be great. It has been my pleasure over the years to have answered questions by fellow arm amputees, first-time parents or sufferers of chronic pain. (Or their spouses)

I have been very close to the edge at times when all of these factors collided in a firestorm of suffering and negativity.

It is my great hope that by showing others what I have been through, can help them endure their own tough times. I am only too pleased to share the many tools, techniques and tips I’ve found or created in the Quarter-Century I’ve been at it.
